8 Hurt After Minivan Crashes Down Embankment, Lands in Creek in Pleasanton: CHP

A minivan crashed down an embankment and landed in a shallow creek in Pleasanton Monday morning, leaving eight people on board with minor injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The wreck, which was reported just before 6 a.m., occurred along northbound Interstate 680 just south of Interstate 580, according to the CHP.

Seven adults and a 3-year-old child were in the minivan at the time of the crash, according to the CHP. They were able to get out of the vehicle on their own.

The CHP is trying to figure out if another vehicle ran the minivan off the road or if the two vehicles collided before the crash.

The other driver did not stop. That is why the CHP is treating the wreck as a possible hit-and-run.

Further information was not available.
